Music for the Augmented Pipe Organ

Music for the Augmented Pipe Organ is a concert experience which merges the vibrant acoustics of the pipe organ with the techniques of electronic music.

Viewing the pipe organ as both a ‘traditional’ and ‘radical’ instrument capable of constructing new sound worlds, the project extends the instrument towards an emerging digital culture using custom digital interfaces that allow real-time manipulation of all organ pipes and stops.

“transforms the world’s oldest mechanical synthesizer into a jarringly futuristic device …. makes the organ feel alive with possibility” – The Wire: Adventures in Sound and Music

Exploring new poetics and anomalies of the organ, the instrument no longer strictly represents a bridge to religion or continuation of a “classical” tradition, but now revels in the most disparate sonic ideas and approaches. This exciting area of interdisciplinary work celebrates process and experimentation and rewards close listening.
